Shuttle has released a fanless mini-PC using Via's 1.0GHz Nano U1700 processor. The Shuttle XS29F is said to feature both VGA and DVI video outputs, up to 4GB of RAM, SATA 2 storage options, four USB ports, and total power consumption of less than 50 Watts.

Apparently set for a formal debut at next week's Computex show in Taipei, the XS29F was announced by Via, not by Shuttle, so details such as dimensions weren't announced. However, photos make plain that the new XS29F uses the same case and layout as previous "nettops" Shuttle has released. These include the X27, released last August with a single-core Atom 230 processor, and the X270V, released in April with a dual-core Atom 330 CPU and OpenSUSE Linux. (Indeed the XS29F's rear panel, pictured later in this story, is visibly identical to the one on the X270V.)
